NAGBITIW na si Atty. Raymond Fortun bilang spokesman ni Cedric Lee, kabilang sa sinasabing bumugbog sa aktor na si Vhong Navarro sa condominium unit ng model na si Deniece Cornejo sa Taguig City.
Sa sulat na naka-address kay Lee, binanggit ni Fortun ang dalawang dahilan ng pagdesisyon niyang pagbibitiw bilang spokesman ni Lee.
“I had been engaged as your spokesman with the objective of being the media’s contact person in all legal as well as factual issues as may be consistent with the thrust of your legal counsels. In this regard, I had faithfully complied with this mandate for the past 12 days, even at peril to my own reputation as a lawyer. Together with this mandate was an agreement that no statements shall by anybody from your group without the consent/approval of your counsels and/or spokesman. This has been breached last night,” pahayag ni Fortun.
Ang isa pa aniyang dahilan, ay hindi makontrol ng bansa ang kanilang emosyon at hindi pa handang tanggapin na ang mga akusado ay may “Constitutional rights to due process, to counsel of your choice, to present a valid and lawful defense, and to confront your accusers in the proper legal setting.”
“The past several days had made me realize that this country is NOT YET READY to accept these legal concepts, to which I squarely lay the blame on inaccurate reportage and the unprofessional actions of certain law enforcement agencies,” dagdag pa ng abogado.
